Zoomer Edition Winter 2014 Luxe Box

Zoomer Winter 2014 Edition Luxe Box Review and Promo Code

Are you a Luxe Box subscriber? Luxe Box is the leading beauty membership service in Canada. Unlike most subscriptions services, with Luxe Box you get a box seasonally (i.e. once every 3 months) rather than monthly. Every box includes 7-8 beauty and lifestyle products, with complimentary shipping. I really like the idea of a more substantial and impressive box quarterly as opposed to a monthly subscription service. The subscription costs as little as $24/season and you can subscribe for a single box, 2 seasonal boxes, or a full

The Ultimate Halloween Makeup Box from Wantable!

I was delighted to receive a surprise in the mail yesterday. The Ultimate Halloween Makeup Box from Wantable! I first shared Wantable with you when I introduced you to their August Makeup Box (which was amazing!). Well in addition to their Makeup and Accessories box they also have a Halloween Box available right now. It is full of products from Cinema Secrets which is one of the top brands in the professional makeup world. It includes: Ultimate Eyeshadows in Gold & Very Black Hollywood Lights Glitz in Oscar &

The Monthly Subscription Box of My Dreams is Real! What’s Inside My August 2013 Wantable Makeup Box?

What's inside this unassuming white box you may ask? Well it's a whole lot of fabulousness, let me tell you! Before I get carried away let me tell you a little about Wantable. It is a company offering monthly subscription boxes to US, Canadian, and Australian residents which are valued at $80 and up and cost $40 for a box or $36/month for an ongoing subscription. There are actually two types of boxes you can choose from. A Makeup Box filled with full sized and premium sample products as well as an Accessories Box filled with

What’s Inside my Spring 2013 Steven and Chris Edition Luxe Box?

I thought you might be interested in seeing what was in my Spring 2013 Luxe Box by Loose Button. This box was curated by the team from the Steven and Chris television show. I love that show! The packaging was lovely. Everything came in the same box and satin pouch as the Winter 2013 edition. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about the samples I received. I will just say that for the price I paid of $25, (it's $50 to receive two seasonal boxes which is what I subscribed for), I was expecting more. Maybe it is just

Glossybox Canada Impresses With It’s Birthday Edition February 2013 Box

Glossybox Canada created a special limited edition glossy black box with a pink bow and ribbon detail in honour of it's first birthday. Inside the black and pink ribbon theme was carried through. I loved how this looked when I opened it. I felt just like my birthday! I think that Glossybox is probably one of the best monthly subscription services that Canada has to offer. I cancelled my Topbox and Glymm box a couple months ago because I was fed up with tiny samples of the same things over and over and so little colour

Winter 2012 Seasonal Luxe Box from LooseButton Review

I was so excited to see my Winter Luxe Box arrive yesterday. I had been so curious to see what the quite pricey, ($26 for 7-8 deluxe samples), new seasonal box would offer. Loose Button changed from being a monthly subscription to a once every 3 months, seasonal box. I was honestly not expecting a lot. I signed up, and prepaid, for two seasonal Luxe Boxes a few months ago. I did not sign up in time, however, to receive the Fall box. After signing up I saw a review of the Fall box shortly after and found it very disappointing. I

What’s Inside my November 2012 Glymm Box

Well after my somewhat disappointing November 2012 Topbox my November Glymm box continued the string of letdowns. This was really a pretty pitiful box in my eyes. I don't know why I haven't just cancelled the damn thing already. One bonus this month is that the bag is super cute! I actually like the collection of these I've acquired as it's been perfect for storing odds and ends in my collection. Lys Parisien Professional Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. Both products contain sulphates and the conditioner silicones. Nice

What’s Inside My October 2012 Glymm Box?

I haven't shown you my Glymm Box in a couple of months. I don't know why I keep sharing my Topboxes with you but when my Glymm box arrives a week later I don't bother sharing it's details with you? I have been pretty happy with the contents. Maybe it's because while I have been fairly happy I haven't been excited enough, nor disappointed enough, to feel the need to post. This month I happen to be pretty impressed with the contents so here is a peek. Lash Card: Individually wrapped, disposable, mascara shields. The sample

I have thinning hair and so does my sister. This

What’s Inside My September 2012 Topbox?

Well it's official. I'm going to cancel my subscription. I waver back and forth between being somewhat satisfied and wanting to cancel and this month's box is the straw that broke the camel's back. Definitely not impressed.Benefit They're Real! Mascara sample - I have been wanting to try this mascara and love getting mascara samples so I am happy with this.Balenciaga Paris L'ESSENCE by BALENCIAGA PARIS perfume sample - I already have this perfume so obviously not terribly excited by it but I do enjoy receiving perfume

(Retails for $10-$12)NUME Style Hydro Punch Hydrating Shampoo 20ml sample size (full size 250ml retails for $24.99)I excited at first about this as it contains Argan Oil and is for damaged, chemical treated hair but turns out it does include Sulphates.

What’s Inside My May 2012 Glymm Box?

Glymm has come out with new eco friendly packaging. I love the sturdy, glossy, pretty pink boxes that the monthly box has always come in as it is very handy for storing things in but I have now accumulated many of them so I am excited by the switch to the cute pink zippered pouch. I wasn't as excited however by what was inside the pouch. Not to say it was a bad "box". It had a lot of samples in it but the full size item that was included was another Cargo eyeliner. I already received a Cargo eyeliner pencil in my January Glymm box

What’s Inside My May 2012 Topbox? Fabulousness!

I'm very happy with my May 2012 Topbox. I'm excited to have finally received a Deborah Lippmann polish since I missed the first one. I also was thing of getting the Cover FX ClearPrep FX for my kit so receiving this generous sample is fabulous. I haven't tried the brush out yet but it feels very soft and looks to be nice quality. There is also an offer for members to get a deal on their brush set. I'm always eager to try new eye creams so looking forward to seeing what results I see with the Orlane cream.Deborah Lippmann Whatever
